Dan Tuten is the current Chair of the PMI IT & Telecom SIG.

He has had speaking engagements in much of the US and Canada as well as international audiences with PMI’s Global Congresses in EMEA.

Project Management for Dan began with the Department of Defense and an Army career that would lead through several assignments and project management challenges. These learning experiences included logistics, IT and planning endeavors, which in turn, allowed him a solid base of experience to take into the private sector. His project management skills were honed to perfection through planning, implementing and managing several IT, telecom and support projects at companies ranging from startups through midsize to Fortune 500. His projects have included CRM, PBX, and support implementations; system, network and telecom upgrades and/or replacements; as well as network, system and software designs.

As a testimony to his various skills he has picked up multiple certifications along the way and currently holds numerous certifications including PMP, MCSE, and a virtual alphabet soup of additional credentials. In addition to certifications, he also has experience with various telecom vendors’ products including Lucent, Aspect, Apropos, 3Com and Cisco.

As a volunteer with PMI, Dan has served with Chapters in Chicago, IL and Atlanta, GA as well as both the IT & Telecom SIG and the ISSIG. He was elected to the IT & Telecom SIG board of directors in 2003 and held positions as both Vice-Chair and Chair of that organization consisting of more than 5500 members worldwide dedicated to excellence in ICT project management. He was also selected to serve with PMI’s Community Transformation Project, an effort to mold the PMI of tomorrow with selected high quality leaders of today.
